The solar radiation is most powerful near the mid-day, so the exposure to the direct Sun should be reduced accordingly. A wide-brim hat offers excellent sun protection for eyes, ears, face, and neck. Sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection significantly reduce eye damage from sun exposure. Tightly woven, loose-fitting clothes provide additional protection from the Sun. Caution! The reflection of snow can nearly double the intensity of the Sun's UV radiation.
